Maintenance for Your 2021 GMC Canyon

How often should I service my 2021 GMC Canyon?

Here’s Why 2021 GMC Canyon Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your GMC Canyon and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Canyon has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Canyon maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2021 GMC Canyon!

GMC knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Canyon's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2021 GMC Canyon problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your GMC Canyon Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2021 GMC Canyon and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Canyon’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2021 GMC Canyon be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Canyon may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your GMC Canyon battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Canyon stranded. Your GMC Canyon won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2021 GMC Canyon's engine run smoother. See GMC's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2021 Canyon in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2021 GMC Canyon.

Periodic service to the steering system in your GMC Canyon can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate GMC Canyon steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your GMC Canyon's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine GMC Canyon maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire GMC Canyon cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your GMC Canyon? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2021 GMC Canyon maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my GMC Canyon? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my GMC Canyon to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your GMC Canyon? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my GMC? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your GMC Canyon in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
